In The Bone Witch, Tea mastered resurrection―now she's after revenge...

No one knows death like Tea. A bone witch who can resurrect the dead, she has the power to take life...and return it. And she is done with her self-imposed exile. Her heart is set on vengeance, and she now possesses all she needs to command the mighty daeva. With the help of these terrifying beasts, she can finally enact revenge against the royals who wronged her―and took the life of her one true love.

But there are those who plot against her, those who would use Tea's dark power for their own nefarious ends. Because you can't kill someone who can never die...

War is brewing among the kingdoms, and when dark magic is at play, no one is safe.

The Heart Forger continues the story of The Bone Witch in it’s interesting way of weaving past and present together. With the interesting characters that always sit on the line of good or bad.

So I love Rin Chupeco’s characters. They are always so interesting. Tea in particular, she is one of those characters that is deeply flawed. She has both light and dark in her and you are not always sure which one is on the surface. I love Tea because she is very open about who she is and fearful of what she has the potential to become. She is also willing to take risk to protect the people she cares about. Despite the fact that her brother is her familiar, she just wants him to happy. In the past we see her as young and just finding her way, in the present we see this very determined woman. She is ready to do what she thinks is right and not let anyone sway her. You start to see more and more of the Tea from before as she tells her story though. Oh the Azi! I love her connection and her discoveries concerning the Daeva.

So there is more love story in this book and I loved it. It also made me sad because you know there is something coming around the bend. We have both Fox’s love story and Tea’s love story. Both are very sweet and fun to read.

Again I love the characters. From the handful of Asha we spend our time with, the Princess Inessa, Khalad the heartforger, Kance the Prince, Kalen the Deathseeker and of course Fox the familiar. Of course there is also the leaders of the Faceless as well. We get a little more insight into them too. I really like everyone and what they bring to the story.

So the book is told from Tea’s past point of view and the Bard’s present point of view. So it’s kind of interesting that we don’t have Tea’s actually feelings in the present. We are still left with questions that will be answered in the next book, I hope. It’s interesting to see as the past starts catching up to the present of Tea’s story. I can never decide how I feel about the length of the book. I’m never not interested in it. Sometimes I have to take breaks but I think it’s because there is a lot to devour and process.

I really enjoyed The Heart Forger. I’m looking forward to seeing the end of Tea’s story. To the end of all the characters stories. I have a feeling the next book will be sad but I also think it will be happy. Ha ha which is hard to explain but I think Tea will find the ending she wants because she is just that kind of girl. Nobody is going to stop her.

Despite uncanny resemblances to Japanese revenants, Rin Chupeco has always maintained her sense of hummus Raised in Manila, Philippines, she keeps four pets: a dog, two birds, and a husband. She’s been a technical writer and travel blogger, but now makes things up for a living. The Girl from the Well was her debut novel.
